I finally made this today, and it's fantastic! Since I had only 2 lb of apples, I halved the recipe, and for a while, I was worried that 1/4 cup water would not be enough, but all went well, and I have a jar of yummy applesauce sitting in my refigerator now! Thanks Lennie, now I have something to top my pancakes with!
I've made a lot of applesause and this is a very good recipe! I used Granny Smith apples, as that is what I had on hand. I put all the ingredients into the pot, including sugar with a little extra to our tastes. Results were perfect! Very easy recipe. Thanks, Lennie!
The coring of the apples took a long time. But, when the applesauce was ready, I was DELIGHTED! Absolutely lovely in taste, I felt like a kid when licking the blender jar towards the finish:) Also, this recipe brought back memories of one of my most favourite desserts known as 'Blushing apple'. I'm now all set to make all sorts of goodies with this delicious yummy applesauce!
I was so pleased to find a recipe to use some apples that had been bought; and I found to bruised and not very nice to just eat as a snack. This was easy, except the peeling and coring of the apples is a little tedous; but well worth it in the end. Especially since my Mom has recently been diagosed with diabetes; and loves applesauce on her pork, I just had to try and make her some homemade, instead of just going out and buying more. I would also like to say I will definitely make it again; and that it filled a 1 litre jar, and a medium sized jar, with 1/4 cup left over for my Mom to enjoy with her lunch today.
I went to the orchard with my kids over the weekend and picked apples. I came home and made this recipe, however, because the apples I chose were tart already, I left out the lemon. Yummy. I added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to my second batch and it was even better! Serve it warm with a little bit of butter and cinnamon. Top with a pie crust cut out baked with sugar and cinnamon. ****** Update: On this year's trip to the orchard we bought Empire Apples which are a bit tart, but I like my applesauce a bit tart anyway. Again,I did not add lemon and this year I added the vanilla as last year and 2 T. of splenda and skipped the sugar. Just fabulous! Also, I purchased a Foley Food Mill so I did not need to peel the apples, or place them in a processor -- huge time savings!
Who knew making apple sauce could be so simple! I like the taste of the cinnamon stick moreso than had I used ground cinnamon. I used a mix of sweet and tart apples, so I ended up using some sugar. I will definitely be making this recipe again, and again, and again... Thank you so much for posting.
Very easy and made to use in a pork with curried onions and apple.
Absolutely delicious! i used McIntosh windfall apples and used a 1/2 cup of sugar. The 2nd batch i used the 2 cinnamin sticks from the previous batch plus 3 and it is wonderful!!
YUM! This smells fantastic as it is cooking and tastes divine! This will be my go to recipe for apple sauce!
This recipe is sooo good. I used a food mill for better consistency. You don't have to peel the apples, so it saves a bunch of time. Just fish the skins out of the food mill!
